I love this Slow Cooker Red Chicken Chili recipe for so many reasons. It’s super yummy and healthier than most chicken chili plus all the ingredients can be placed directly in the Crock – no need to brown the meat first! Feel free to tinker with the type of beans you use and amount of chiles (in adobo sauce) to match your taste for spice. Please share comments on what you did to make this chili recipe your own.
- Place the ground chicken in the slow cooker.
- Add 3 1/2 T. of chili powder (set aside the remaining 2 tsp. for later)
- Add remaining ingredients, EXCEPT the beer.
- Mix everything in the Crock.
- Cover and Crock on LOW for 6 hours.
- Stir in the remaining 2 tsp. of chili powder and the beer, if needed.
- Serve in bowls with your favorite toppings like cheese, sour cream, taco chips, green onions, etc.
